A light apricot color with an off-white head. The nose offers aromas of tart berries, moderate barnyard, soft herbs like lavender and sage, and a touch of tangerine citrus. Raspberry flavors develop in the mouth along with notes of toasty biscuit, vanilla, graham cracker pie crust and ruby red grapefruit oil. Medium carbonation and silky, woody tannins flesh out the mouth, creating a balance between sweet fruit, sour acidity and spice. The dry, fruity finish is clean and not overwhelmed by acidity; a sipper to be savored.
